W.A.S.P.-Still Not Black Enough (Castle)

It's always sort of sad when something loses its sense of menace. A decade ago, circa Animal (Fuck Like a Beast), Blackie Lawless and his brethren were Tipper Gore's proof positive that rock & roll was evil.

You'd think W.A.S.P. would stay relevant in the grunge '90's more than most of their metal cronies, particularly since leader Lawless had a bit of a punk pedigree as a member in one of the later incarnations of the New York Dolls.

Well, in 1996 W.A.S.P. are doing covers of the Jefferson Airplane (the hippy-dippy anthem "Somebody to Love") and Queen. Sort of makes you wish the Parents' Music Resource Center could have shut the band down when they still had some bite.  (11/96)
